The Wilmington Memorial Library is a member of the Merrimack Valley Library Consortium (MVLC), a network of over 30 area libraries. If you live in a town that is a member, simply obtain a card from your hometown library and it may be used at the Wilmington Memorial Library and in any other library in MVLC. If your card is from another network (NOBLE, Minuteman, Metro Boston, CLAMS, Old Colony, CW/MARS or SAILS), you may register it in our network.
Out-of-state residents must pay an annual fee of $75.00 to obtain a library card that can be used to borrow material at any library in MVLC. Out-of-state residents who work in Wilmington may obtain a "local use only" card with no annual fee that can be used only at the Wilmington Memorial Library.
Your first library card is free. The cost for a replacement card is $1.00.
